Psychonauts 2 is awesome and on Gamepass, so I doubt it flopped.
The marketing gave me the impression that it was an arcade shooter that looped. I'm not sure if that impression was accurate or not since it didn't draw me into purchase territory. Looked like more of a technical showcase to me than something I would play long term.Platinum trophies on both for me. Fantastic games.
Deathloop is seriously under rated, partly because the marketing seemed set on making it our to be something it wasn't. I had a great time with what it was.
It was 20 years between games, so they recap the story in the sequel. You don't need to play the first game, however it had some super amazing levels!I enjoyed Deathloop a LOT. Arkane is one of my favourite developers. I haven't even played the original Psychonauts, so I doubt I'll ever get around to the sequel.
Deathloop isn't a roguelike.Not into roguelike, Returnal was an exception due to its lore and overall setup. Psychonauts 2 is a PS4 game with no PS5 version. Might give them a try when they hit PS Plus free monthly games.
MS really seems to be pushing towards digital more than any other company. It seems like a way for them to gradually start phasing out physical products by not releasing disc versions of their non "AAA" games.I just learnt that Psychonauts 2 is digital only, that alone would stop me purchasing the game. Why wouldn't there be a physical copy for sale, was there any reason given?
